" Normally, an upgrade won't change your configuration file.  RPM is supposed

" No, this indicates that you can't Upgrade the KDE RPMs one at a time, you
 must Upgrade them all " at once:
" rpm -Uvh --test kdelibs*3.1-58mdk*.rpm
" {Note: if you are new to UNIX/Linux, yes you can use more than one '*' in a
 RE} "
" You will probably need to Upgrade aRts and Qt as well.

" You will need a new version of each KDE RPM which you currently have
